ABOUT JIVE COMICS

OUR STORY

After spending more than a decade covering nightlife and events, startup founder GN Ochoa renewed his interest in digital art and comics that he felt its time to catch up with his original passion: making comics.

He revived RaveForce – a sci-fi superhero team that he created in 1996 and by 1998 had a finished graphic novel but never found its way in print. He saw an opportunity to introduce his creation to the world, re-imagining everything and made it more fit to today’s modern setting. RaveForce was originally launched at GimikZone, an entertainment media startup co-founded by GN that focused on nightlife, events, geek culture and social media trends.

However, GN wanted to focus more on digital art and web comics than what GimikZone focused on. That is how Jive Comics was born.

Launched in November of 2018 originally as INKD Comics. Jive Comics serves as an online publishing platform for Filipino comic creators as well as a breaking ground for aspiring individuals who want to re-define and shape an ever-evolving industry.

As local comics lean more forward to the digital side of things, which is evident with the rise of online platforms like Webtoons and Tapas, Jive Comics is here to further push the local comics scene to new heights, helping people discover inspiring new and standout titles along the way.

Truly, Jive Comics is shaping the future of Filipino digital comics.
